MethodIn large bowl, beat butter with sugar until fluffy; beat in egg and almond extract.
In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; stir into butter mixture.
On lightly floured surface, roll out dough to scant 1/8-inch (3 mm) thickness. Using 1-1/2- to 1-3/4-inch (4 to 4.5 cm) round cookie cutter, cut out shapes. Place, about 2 inches (5 cm) apart, on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until edges are golden, about 10 minutes. Transfer to racks; let cool.
Spread bottoms of half of the cookies with jam; top with remaining cookies.
Icing: In small bowl, combine icing sugar, almond extract and enough hot water to make thin icing; spread over tops of cookies. Top each with piece of cherry. Let stand until icing is dry, about 3 hours.
